Little Sleestak Sunday and Zines

Little Enik when he was happy.  Before the weight of his fore-bearers was placed on his shoulders.

This little guy's first words were "Lurker, yum.  Munch, munch."

Snowy Sleetstak Sunday to all those in the blogosphere.  Last night I failed to make the 5e playtest.  Whisk was down with an injury and needed tending.  But it sounds like we may do it Monday instead of our regular game.

I also wanted to mention that I've gotten 20 sales this month with Knowledge Illuminates.  Someone bought 2 copies this morning.  This burst of interest in it has inspired me to finish Starter Adventures.  I'm stuck on the layout.  I'm struggling with even the basics things (like fricking margins).  I've got a good chunk of time to work on it today since I don't have to worry about GMing tomorrow.

I think Christian has started something with Lovitar.  Their is a welcome zine-demic going around the OSR.  Matt Jackson is planning to put out a new issue of his Lapsus Calumni zine.  You can grab some of the older issues using that link.  Also Matt has been doing a Friday Five Minute Map feature on his blog.  Very cool, but I keep forgetting to do one. 

Johnathan Bingham mention on his blog he is working on a zine called Delve.  He also mention Kobold Quarterly is open to publishing OSR articles, but hasn't received submissions.  In my ignorance I thought KQ only did 4e stuff.  I have been corrected.

I did a review on another zine style adventure earlier from Jason Sholtis, Zogorion, Lord of the Hippogriffs.  Fun adventure, well written and some cool surprises.

And I'll end it with the man who started this madness, Christian, is working hard on issue #8 of Lovitar.  Jay Penn is kicking out some great artwork and it sounds like Christian is going to need a bigger stapler.

Time to get back to work.
